I recently attended the Microsoft Research Faculty Summit in Redmond, Washington, where I had a chance to ask Bill Gates about using technology to teach emotional intelligence, resilience, and socio emotional skills in schools. Here's Bill's response.
The summit, held on July 15, was Microsoft Research’s fourteenth annual Faculty Summit. More than 400 academic researchers from 200 institutions and 29 countries joined Microsoft Research to assess and explore today’s computing opportunities with Bill Gates setting the topic of “Innovation and Opportunity—the Contribution of Computing to Improving Our World". Some of the talks and keynotes from the summit are available for viewing online.
